On the rise: monitoring employees’ Web habits
By Preeti Vasishtha
Many agencies know what their workers are doing and where they are going on the Internet.
More than 200 federal, state and local agencies use software that monitors how employees use the Internet at work.
Some critics have raised concerns that using such software can threaten employees’ privacy rights and lead to discriminatory practices by management.
But federal managers defend the use of the applications.
What about in your office? Are you the only one with the tech savy to implement this kind of system? Is someone likely to be looking over your shoulder? Are there more concerns about whether you're at the driving range when you should be doing field work?
